GeoLearning, Inc. was a US company headquartered in West Des Moines, Iowa, offering on-demand software as a service (SaaS) learning management system (LMS) solutions for corporate internal training, talent management and external initiatives.
Founded in 1997 by Frank A. Russell, president and CEO, and his wife Linda in the basement of their home, GeoLearning eventually grew to employ 280 people. GeoLearning’s approach allows users to work with a number of the company’s partner organizations. In February 2008, GeoLearning secured a growth equity investment of $31 million from Fidelity Ventures. The funds, which represented the first institutional investment for the company, were utilized to accelerate the company’s sales and marketing efforts, continue building of its international presence and channel partner network, and potential acquisitions.
On January 5, 2011, Geolearning was acquired by SumTotal.
